enyaw061032 Posted December 3, 2006 Share Posted December 3, 2006 I thought it best to put this post as a new topic so more of you dear friends could see it and help me, please I went to the hospital at 9:00 AM this morning, and finally had a bronchoscope at 11:30! Aren't these hospitals efficient? The doctor was 30 minutes late as I wait in an uncomfortable position with my nose harnessed for a breathing treatment; then they took that off and I waited more. Finally the doctor came and before I knew it, I was knocked out and woke up being taken back to my room. My husband was waiting for the doctor, so the doctor went in and told him that HE WAS NOT ABLE TO FIND THE CANCER! Can you believe this? So I am back at square one. The next step is unknown right now; it is contingent upon whether the oncologist can come up with a treatment without knowing for sure what kind of lung cancer this is - whether a recurrence or a new one, plus all the other areas that were lit up on the PET SCAN. If the onc can't proceed, and I am a bit uncomfortable with him proceeding without knowing what, precisely, he is treating me for? Anyway if the onc is uncomfortable, then the surgeon will open up the front of my neck and get in there for a biopsy. Needless to say, friends, I am a total and complete wreck! Have any of you heard of such a thing? Any advice, pleae? Barb Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
